Your shot list is a living document that list the products you’re shooting, features that need to be highlighted (like embroidery or other details your photographer may not recognize on their own), how your product will be worn (like whether it’s a laydown or on-body, and what model or mannequin will be used), and practical details like whether you have the product on hand.

You should have the shot list available during your shoot, and update it as the day progresses to ensure you don’t forget a necessary shot.

A call sheet is a document that roughly lays out the shoot schedule, location, and crew. It gets its name from the “call times” for each member of the crew: in other words, what time each individual needs to arrive. You don’t want to be paying a model to stand around for hours while you’re still building your set. Try to get your call sheet out a week in advance to confirm everyone’s schedule.
